For me, yesterday's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day coincided with a chance to visit Summerwinds Nursery, an opportunity which unabashedly ousted my Bloom Day post till today. After all, this is the start of planting season here and the tables were loaded. Every minute I could spare today went to planting, and there is still plenty left to do!
Meantime, I didn't want to miss my Bloom Day post altogether. So out I went with camera in hand, only to find my flower photography preempted by an even more interesting subject.
Hummingbirds are one of the important elements in this garden. I love to have the garden alive with the tiny creatures, and to feel that the flowers I have planted are a source of delight for them, as they are for me. Here is a quick look at the hummingbird flowers in bloom just now.
But a number of other flowers must not be forgotten either as they brighten the garden.
And there are the roses. Still only the miniatures are blooming heavily.
Then there are the shrub roses.
Finally, a few other glimpses around the garden.
Happy GBBD! I'll be linking with May Dreams Gardens for this month's look at what is in bloom around my garden and around the world.
